Here are the XI players who stood out on match-day seven according to Shaban Lubega in a 3:4:3 formation.

CB: Kurt Zouma (Chelsea)
Some nervous moments especially in the first half but the Frenchman bounced back, scoring the second goal in the 3-0 victory over Burnley.

LWB: Sergio Reguilon (Tottenham Hotspur)
Assisted Bale for the winner is Spurs’ victory over Brighton on Sunday.

What a performance by the Ghanaian! Partey controlled and bossed the midfield as Arsenal edged Man United 1-0 at Old Trafford.
MF: James Ward-Prowse (Southampton)
Assisted one and scored twice in Southampton’s 4-3 victory at Aston Villa.
FW: Jack Grealish (Aston Villa)
Assisted a goal and scored one-him self in the loss to Southampton.
